Don't touch the eSwap script. It has a Vulnerability and has done since 2010. The script creators did not think it was worth contacting any of their customers to let them know and I have only just found out today through the site being hacked.

The script never worked properly from the beginning and even after many attempts for them to get it right it still did not work correctly. In the end they just ignored my requests for help.

*Chat system does not work
*Passwords are not recognised
*Currency does not show correctly
* Cannot delete members from site without deleting them from the database through PHPMYADMIN
*Unsubscription does not work fro users from front end

I have installed and used many scripts and this would be at the bottom of my list for quality or value for money.

Although the support was friendly it was not effective.

If you are using this script be aware that there still may be a vulnerability for hackers.

Topcommunitysoftware provides user reviews on social networking scripts like socialengine, phpfox or boonex dolphin. These out of the box social networking software packages can be used to create highly interactive social networking sites, or to add interactive social features to your existing websites. You'll also find a selection of dating scripts that you can use for dating websites.  Your also find other scripts such as twitter clones, marketplace scripts, and many more.

When selecting to buy a script, we advise you to check three things:

- Open source social networking script?

This means that you'll be able to hire someone to change and customize the site if needed. If the source code is not open, they won't grant you access to the code and no changes will be possible.

- do you have to pay a monthly or yearly licence for the script updates?

Be careful not to fall into the trap of buying a cheap social networking script with huge "update" subscription fees.

- is their an active support community in case you have troubles with your script?

Almways make sure they have a community forum where you see they answer customers' problems.
